What Cau Be Dope? 

Editor of the Argus. — Dear Sir; 

Having noted with groat interest your 
mo.rtuary list concerning the death 
rate among the Negro population, I 
feci that the subject; is of 'great con-' 
cern tu all humanitarians. Commenc 
log If arch . S rKere were forty-'nin" 
deaths, March is' thirty-seven deaths'. 
April 13, forty four deaths. April 20, 
forty-three deaths, Apr. 27, twenty -eight 
deaths. Total in'flve weeks, 201 death*., 
A number of thoughtful oitinens have 
!"■.-■■ discussing the matter and arrived 
at the conclusion that the cause* prin- 
cipally are due'lo unsanitary conditions 
improper lousing in moat ease*. 
believed tsat a number of health 
inspector* could aid the city in elimin- 
ating the , evil, which is alarmingly 
great; 

Vary ■ respectfully .

NO SLACKER FOR THIS SERVICE. /* - 

'■ Volunteer service, is generally accepted as an expansion of 
character of the individual. This part . was most interestingly 
brought out at a meeting of the campaign committee and workers 
of the Pine Street Branch Young Men's Christian Association two 
weeks ago. 

The spirit of volunteer service, and team work ran high. The 
chairman of the Board of Managers^ Prof. F. L. Williams in an in 
teresting talk, told his hearers of the joys of real service. This 
was an enthusiastic meeting. There were no slackers there. Every 
man seemed willing to do 'his "bit" toward paying and collecting 
the remaining part of the building fund. . 

The colored people of St. Louis are on trial The raising and 
collecting fifty thousand dollars is a big undertaking. We should 
meet the task cheerfully. We hava been most fortunate in St. 
Louis. Those who subscribe large amounts have set the pace by 
paying. Surely those who subscribed leaser amounts will do their 
part. 

The half-way-mark has been assured, and one' more strong pull 
all-to-gether will set a new mark in Y. M. C- A. work among col* 
ored people in this country. Slackers can't do it. . . ■ ', _

THE N. A. A. C. P DISTRICT CONFERENCE. 

The District Conference of the National Association for the 
Advancement of Colored People, which opened a three-day session 
in this city at the Berea Presbyterian Church Friday night, should 
receive the most hearty support from all lovers of liberty and hu- 
man rights. Not merely because of its name, nor because its head- 
quarters are in New York City, but because it ia the organization 
that has done more for the Negro in securing his political and civil 
rights than any other agency since the civil war, This organization 
is composed oi white and colored people,, who have banded them- 
selves together: to fight for the cause of humanity, and especially 
against all laws of a discriminating nature, that are on the statute 
books in most of the states and municipalities of this country. 

Customs, for instance, which allow one class of citizens to 
lynch, burn at the stake, jim-crow.. deny equal justice before the 
law, and many other forms of injustices; custom, we say, that in 
moat cases nave been put into some form of law. These are the 
principal evils that the National Association for/the Advancement 
of colored people is fighting. Judge D. P. Dyer in granting an 
injunction- restraining the City of St. Louis from enforcing the seg- 
regation' ordinances, said that he would have made the order perm- 
anent were it not for the fact that the Louisville case was before 
the United States Supreme- Court. 

The Louisville case is of vital interest to the Negro, its decision 
will determine whether the Negro shall, have the rights- tobuy 
land or own a home in any part ofJthi3 country; where he is able, 
by the sweat of his brow to pay for- This Loujsvillecase tha,t is be- 
fore the Supreme Court is in charge of the National Association for 
the Advancement of Colored People. It was argued a short while 
ago, perhaps its last lime. Mr. Moorfield- Storey, that eminent at- 
torney and president of the association argued the case on behalf 
of the plaintiffs. He met every contention made by the defense 
with a knock-out-blow. That old argument, that such an ordinance 
is fair because it applies equally to both races, was left on its 
"knuckles" without a leg to stand on. Reply to this argument Mr. 
Storey said: * - - 

. "In the present case it is contended that the difficulty is met by 
the provision that- white persons shall not occupy buildings in - cbl- 
, ored blocks.' As well argue that, an ordinance which prevented a 
denizen of Five Points from moving into Fifth Avenue could be 
sustained because it forbade the dweller on Fifth Avenue to move 
into Five Points. Anatole France .ha;-/ commented upon the abso- 
lute justice of the laws which prevent rich and poor alike from 
sleeping under the arches of the bridges- which crosses the Seine. 
-and from begging in the public streets. A law which forbids a 
Negro to rise is not made just because it forbids a white man to 
fall." 

The above statement is rich;. full and comprehensive. In ans- 
wer to another old argument that such a law tends to avoid fric- 
tion between races, Mr. Storey-said: 

"At Palm Beach in Florida Negroes act as chauffeurs;- if they 
appear in Miami they are mobbed and the result- is a breach of the 
public peace. In some places they are. attacked if they engage in 
certain employments which the whites, wish to monopolize, and 
Violence may be used in the effort to prevent therii. ' , 

"Would the police power, justify a law forbidding them to act 
as chauffeurs in Miama, or to engage in any lawful employment 
anywhere, -because they might be attacked if they did so? If so, 
they have no rights. If not, this ordinance cannot be sustained, 
for it is defended-on tfie ground that one body of citizens may take 
, from another body their clear rights in prder to prevent" law less at- 
tacks upon the latter by the former. The only policeman who 
ever fancied that such a police power existed was the wolf in his 
dealings with the lamb." * 

This argument, seemis to us should settle the question of legal 
segregation for ever. And as we said in the outset, no doubt but 
that this is the last time that such a case will ever cone before the 
highest tribunal of this land, f* . 



WHO CAN TELL? 



This world war as it now appears to be.'preaenta an interesting 
stage and leaves much room for comment and speculation as to 
the part that each, country or ..nation shall play. Just what spot of 
ground the^, final curtain will rati oh seems to be beyotid prediction 
with any certainity at present. ,'.--■' 

However, a close study of human nature, and the remote ma- 
neuvers of the] big and little nations' of the world will furnish 
some' food for thought. , « . 

Theeyasof the world'are-upon the United States. Its ears 
are op*«n to hear the new aeheiyementa of the German Sub-Marine. 
Its pocket-books are open to England and France with silver and 
gold, and it is generally accepted that the terms of peace will be 
dictated by one of these four great nations. 

This reminds us very much- of the National election which took 
place East fall. The best informed politicians, had their eyes on 
Illinois, Ohio, Pennayvania and New York to elect the president, but 
it was left to far away California to cast the deciding vete, ■ 

Call forth wisest men, look to every spot on the glebe, who can 
tell who will cast the deciding vote in , this great war. We are not 
a prophet, nor the son of a prophet, but we predict before the final 
settlement is made, all ' map of everywhere will be 
. ought for as the politician seeks the voters, and that the far off 
"California" will come in and dictate the terms of peace.

Tbo moat Ini- 
portant element

egy which directs

with which Its 
plana are Ir.-i — 
plana for prepa- 
ration* before 
war and plan- for 
opera t loaa dn rin g

mind la to a iimti 
Bradley A. Flake ' ll detennlnea lu 
. character, its ciim- 
posltlon. Its alms; and ao far as 
tenia I conditions will permit, the ic- 
♦Hits' which It accomptlshea. 
" One dialtkes Intensely to crltl 
lilo own country, even to himself, 
when a nival ofTlcer la studying— a* 
lie should continually do— what must 
ba done. In order to protect his cuun- 
try from attaclrjiy some foreign foe. 
It would' be criminal iolly for bun tg 
estimate the actuation otherwise, ttiSO 
honestly; and to do this. It la Becsav 
sary to try to aee where hla coun- 
try la weak and where atrong. rela- 
tively to the possible foO* in quoatim. 
If we iii) this, and compare the stra- 
tegical methods employed bv — auv <;.-r- 
many and us— wa are forced to admit 
that the German methods are beuer 
adapted to producing economically a 
navy Mtred to contend succeearully 
In war agalnat an enemy. In tier- 
many the development of the n.ify 
hae been strictly along the Itnee. 
of a method carefully devised before- 
hand: In our country no method what- 
ever Is -apparent, at least no loci'ai 
method. Cong reps, and Congreaa alone, 
decides what veaaels and other r-r.ifc 
shall be built, how many officers and 
men shall wear the uniform. It ls.;:-iie 
that they, consult the rejiort dt the 
Secretary of Navy, and- ask the opin- 
ions of some naval officers; and ll Is 
true that, the Secretary of Navy gels 
the opinion* of certain naval officers 
Including the Qenerml" Board, before 
malting his report. But both the Sec- 
retary and Congreaa estimate the sit- 
uation from their own points of view 
and place their own -value on the ad 
vice of naral olTIcere. And the adilea 
of thes* naval otficera'Ie not. 
uaHle. .possibly ,aa It might be: .for the 
rssma that It is really Irresponsible, 
alnce the advlaers' themselvee kno* 
that It will not. be taken very *eri 
onaly. The difference between the 
advice of men .held responsible for 
the results of following their advice, 
and the advice of men not ao held 
responsible'. Is well rocognlied. anil 
la.dlacaased fully In the report 
the -Moody and the Swift Boards on 
the organisation of the Navy Depart' 
ment. Furthermore, our officers do 
not have the machinery of the Krier- 
aplel to help them. It li. (rue that 
at ' the Naval War College, a War- 
game apparatus la. Installed' and that 
war game* are played, and war prob- 
lems are solved; bat the officers are 
very properly engaged In the regular 
work' of a war college. In educating 
offlcera In the principle*, of warfare, 
■ nd -have llttln time Tor other work. 
It Is also true that the war games and 
problems there do lead occasionally to 
recommendations by the War Cclhsge 
to the' General Board .a* to various 
matters; but. the connection -between 
the conclusions of the War College 
and the decisions of Congress vis. the 
General Board "and the Secretary of 
Navy Is so fragile and dlecontlnuona, 
that It may truthfully be said that the 
Influence -;t the war gamea si oar 
War College has but a (hint resem- 
blance to the determining forte of the 
Kriegsplel in Berlin: ' 

' A riu'jneition From France - . 
-• It St often said that Germany ia aa, 
empire and the t'nited States a re- 
public, and that therefore the military 
method* of Germany, cannot b^ em- 
ployed here.. The Inference li not 
neceoshrily correct.' Bow ewer, aa la 
-shown by'lhe excellency of- the iinay 
of France, for France, although a re- 
public; Insists that military strategy 
only shall control and direct the army.' 
The American Congre** can do the 
same with the American Navy. Wheth- 
er Confreaa ahall *o decide or ndl 
the decision will undoubtedly be wise 
and we of the navy will do nue nl 
most to niake the navy all it shoal* 
be. In this connection. It Should 'be 
noted that: 

L. Germany has been following, a 
certain strategic system, regarding the 
navy;, we a system different from that 
of any other navy,- which has been 
rued- now for more than one hundred 
ec! forty yearn. Both ayatem- hate 
beee In operation for a time hafficMBfc 
ly long to warrant, oar' comparing 
them, by enmpartog tha .remits they 
have achieved/ 

I. The German navy ha* ■ ■ ■■- In 
existence a much shorter time? than 
the American . navy, belong* to a 
much less populous and wealthv ,-c.un- 
Iry. and yet Is not only 410 per cent.

Leaving out ot consideration, however, 
what ahe may have been doing alnce 
the war began, and neglecting' any 
i! n authenticated account* at her stat-

ly that lu 1913 the maneuver* of the

Of 21 battleships. 3 battle cruiser's. E

sisted of 15 battleship* and 13 d'e-

sconte (unless the Cheater be so con- 
sidered, which was cruising alone off 
the coaat of Liberia, and tbe Birming- 
ham, which was the flagehip to the 
destroyer flotilla). This was the only

The Returning 
Saint .- 



Bj REV. JAnfES M. GRAY, 0. D. 



r— Rnion unto ma the ]e» of thy 
on; ud upheld ma with thy fna 

•PeelM 61:12. 

Tills 1 1 one of the best-known, and 

(■oat highly praised 'Psalms of David, 

which one " .'baa 

called, "the mold 

or experience of a 

sinning Hint who 
comes back to God 
18 full communion 
and service." 

David, It most 
1) e remembered, 
DM a man nt one 
time' In fall com- 
munion wlih God, 
even though he 
eo greatly Binned, 
aa this Psalm In- 
dicates. Through 
a a n tl d e n and 
Ktrong temptation 
ho committed the 
Bin' nt adultery, and then even 
to coyer over some of the effect! 
it by being accessory to the eln of 
r. Nevertheless, and because he 
nil; know God, his conviction. of 
sin In the premises nearly broke bis 
heart Ills cry of repentance and u li- 
neal for mercy ore recorded la this 
Psalm', whose wall of Borrow- and suh- 
•equeot shout of Joy have been heard 
through nil the agea bringing Instruc- 
tion and comfort to many another sin- 
ning saint. 

It Is for this reason so Instructive. 
for us to observe how David returned 
to God. First of all, he clearly and 
definitely Judged bis own sin before 
Gin!. -This Is expressed In the first sis 
versus of (lie l'tuilm I'V'iv ln< cries out 
for mercy, uefcnnw I edging his guilt und 
pleading for a. thorough cleonalqg from 
his iniquity. 

Forgiveness and Cleansing. . ■ 
In the nest division of the Pstilm we 
see forgiveness and cleansing uccard- 
■ ed lilin and secured on his putt by 
Iflllh In the atoning blood. Tills Is 
expressed In verses 7-10, In the sym-' 
bollstn of the hyssop". In the washing 
of his soul until It Is whiter' than snow. 
In the blotting but of his Iniquity. Hnd 
In the creation within him of a clemi 
heart. 

.We now see the Restored one fllled 
with liie Spirit of God: In Ters.es HIT. 
Be Is fllled with the Joy of salvation; 
he la Oiled with power to teach trans 
gressors nn3 convert sinners; he Is 
fllled with the spirit of service and 
, 'with the spirit of worship us Indicated 
In his overtiming praise, and the pre- 
sentation unto God of the sacrifice of 
■ broken, spirit and a contrite heart. 
Finally he Is seen in. fellowship with 

God. And Interested now, not so tnuch 

In things concerning himself, as in the 
things 1 lint concern <10d.. His cry Is, 
•Do' good In thy good pleasure unto, 
•iii'ii ;- build thou the wnllii of Jeru- 
salem." 

The Same Truth In the New Testament. 
One finds all the more encourage- 
ment to urge this because the same 
truth, only-put In another way. la set 
before us agtiln In the New Testa- 
ment.. Ton will find It In 'the First 
Epistle of John, chsajter J, verse 9, 
where,, addressing Christian believers,. 
. he. says. -"If ere ' confess our sin B, He 
(J. e. God). Is'falthful and just to fur- 
glve us. oar Bins, and to cleanse as 
from a 11, qu righteousness." 
' Because a Innn U saved by Ood's 
gtrice through faith In Christ, 1. e„ 
because he is u-true Christian believ- 
er. Is not to -say Ihnt be will never 
again commit. a sin against. God. It is 
Indeed his privilege. tlir<inKh the power 
of God's/splrlt dwelling within him. to 
coniiniially live a life' of victory over 
pin. ud yet. like David, he may fait. 

Under such circumstances, what is 
he to dot Has Jie lost out again? 
Has he utterly fallen never to be re- 
stored any more? Hub Christ's sac- 
-rlfice forever lost Its efficacy for him? 
No, thank Sod, Chrlel, as his high 
priest in heaven, ever llveth to task 
iutenvs.-ion for him. .And now. like 
David ngaln, it Is for him to Judgi 
bis sin before God, for that U really 
the meaning of the word, "confess. 
Let hiin do this, and he will Bad God 
"faithful and Just to forgive' 
"Faithful". to his promise .that means, 
and ."Just" becil use Jesus Christ has 
paid the penalty of bis sin. 

"Merciful and Just," . 
. That word "JuM" Is full of strength 
and comfort for us. God Is -ant only 
"merciful" In forgiving the man who 
comes to him through Christ, 'hutfaVla 
."Just" In doing sot .'He Is "Just" he- 
cause that men's sins have already 
been atoned for on the cross, anil It 
wonld be unjust to Ignore. that great 

fact and to cast the man away. 

This la 1 lesson fur Christian back- 
sliders, and alas! there are many of 
1 them in the charvh. - Some' of them 
I would gladly return to the father's 
I" house, but they are timid and fearful.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SELF-CON- 
TROI TEMPERANCE LESSON. ' 

LESSON TEJtT-Iss. 3:1-1*. 

GOLDEN TEXT-Bvary man that atrlv. 
alh for the mastery la wmperato In all 
thh a yl . t por. ids. 

Wlno In the BcrlptureB Is spoken of 
under four ospects. First, social, that 
as Illustrated by. Its use at the mar- 
riage In Cans." We must not, however, 
confuse this wine, with the spirituous, 
strong drink of this present day. Sec- 
ond, medicinal' <Prov. 31:fKT; I Tim, 
9:£i). These passages,, do' not com- 
mand us to use 'It as such, and God 
has very graciously revealed to us 
In modern medical research' the futil- 
ity of the nse of alcohol In the matter 
of medicine as a remedy. Third, sacri- 
ficial w|ue (MatL 20:^7-20; Luke 22:17- 
20), and. fourth wine (s spoken about 
os productive of the woes of men (See 

Amos 8:1: Heb. 2:15; Prov. 23:20). 
It Is also mentioned by way of contrast 
(See Eph. 5:18). 

The Scriptures speak of drunkards 
In four different ways: (I) They are 
to be atoned (DeuL 21 :20) : (2) Drunk- 
arda lead to poverty (Prov. 23:21); 
(3) Drunkards are to be separated 
from other men (I Cor. 6:11); <-t) 
they are to be Anally separated from 
God (I Cor.B:!)). 

Abstinence from strong drink Is en- 
Joined In the Scriptures under three 
heads: (1) the priest and Naze rite 
(.Num. 0:3; Luke 1:15); (2) tbe*uler 
(Prov. 31:4); (3) those who are to 
worship Jehovah .{Lev. 10:3). 

This particular Icssnn Is taken from 
ft portion' of Isaiah's prophecy where 
lie Is nnilripuiiug what Is about to hap- 
pen to Snitiurla, und littering. Ills Want- 
ing* unto Judob. 

I. The Steps of Intemperance. First, 
Disgrace and Dishonor (v. 1). The 
city of Samaria Is compared to a 

chapkt of flowers on a drunkard's, 
row, which shall he trodden under 
foot because of his Inebriety, Drunk- 
seemed to have been so wide- 
spread us to become a national sin. 
Second. Disease and Degeneracy (v. 2). 
The pride of beauty .spoken of fu verse 
one Is to "Call to the earth." This 
glorious beauty was after all only a 
"fading aimer" {!_ Pet .1:24). The 

coming of tin- Assyrians upon Samaria 
Is described, in a three-fold way: (1) 
Art B "tempest of hull"; (2) as a "ile- 
stroslng storm;" (3) as a , 'lempe*t' 
of mighty waters ' overflowing," The 
thought contained Is that of wide- 
■apreud and overwhelming destruction. 
Buck of tills work of devastation and 
destruction and desolation was the 
wralh of (li«l against sin (Ch. 2:4-11). 
All earthly pride shall be troddea un- 
der foot. Saiiuirlu. "u fading flower'." 
was to be greedily eaten up by the on- 
coming, enemy. -' 

II. Those Reached by Intemperance. 
Strong drink causes mCn to err in their 
conduct, in their moral insight. In their 
Judgments. It reaches- tiie beautiful 
(v. 1); it reaches the learned (v-. 7); 
It reaches . tbtea in authority; lb-fact 
all classes. It leads-eueu ty tha'depths 
nf degrs ilat ion and to tile loHs/of Iheir 
wills (v. 8) ; It makes men Jo became 
beasts, wiilioiiiiig in their own vomit. 
Not only Siniiarlu, hut "these also" 
(vv, 7. und B), tluit Is people of Jeru- 
salem have ernii through wine 'and 
strong drink. Kven the priests, and 

pliers tisid and do so now (See 
Ch. 5tl:itH2,^lIinih''2;H). The priests 
were especlully Ineicusiihle because of 
the piiiin dlrecxnesB of Cod's word 
(Lev. J tJ ; £*- ] tl ; Eaeklel .44:21). The 
result of their Intemperance was that 

hey uuerb/ failed lu Ihelr 'oliiclul 
acts. They reeled In vision and stum-

Ignorance of Sainjiriajr-Kvv, 6; 7. 
h[s strength versus their weakness and 
wickedness [vv. ft 13). Ood teaches 
by contrast as well as by dl 
precejit. Verses nlneand ten may be 
taken as a mocking answer of the peo- 
ple to God's prophoL Isaiah Intimates 
that the time to begin our instruction 
Is in. childhood (y. »), that precept
